Benefits of Custom Fitting:
Measurements To Determine Proper Fit
There are a variety of factors that contribute to a well-fitting mobility device. It’s important to have a professional take these measurements and use them to fit your device to you.
The seat should be wide enough to accommodate your hips and avoid pressure wounds. However, it should not be too wide that the personal mobility device is cumbersome.
The needs of the user determine the height of the armrest. The armrest adjustment should provide forearm support without undue shoulder or wrist stress.
Your legs should rest comfortably on your footrest with thighs level and not less than a 90-degree angle at the knee.
Some devices require a “standover height” setting to provide proper support without movement restrictions.
Controller or Joystick placement is critical for comfort and safety. Right- or Left-handed. One handed or two-handed brakes; and, Stand-assist pressures all need to be adjusted to the user’s specific needs.
Seat angles, Seat dump, back support heights and angles contribute to a user’s comfort, safety and overall enjoyment of their newfound freedom & independence.
